A PERSONAL TESTIMONY: WHY CHRISTIAN LEADERS SHOULD NOT PROMOTE HENRI NOUWEN

Please read the important article at Lighthouse Trails
Why Christian Leaders Should Not Promote Henri Nouwen
that inspired the diatribe which follows:

I became a big fan of Henri Nouwen after discovering him on the reading list of the Spiritual Formation syllabus at a seminary where I took a few classes a couple of years ago. As an author, I found him to be warm, honest and engaging. He appealed to the scholarly side of me as well. I ended up choosing to write one of my papers for the Spiritual Formation class about two of the books he wrote. (It was a required class – I was enrolled in the Marriage and Family Counseling program).

Early this morning  three things entered my mind when I recounted the religious deception that had occurred in my own life.

1. I had listened to the lies of Satan.

2. When I knew the truth I repented and turned away from the spiritual pride of thinking of myself  as “special”.

3.  I had to warn others of the spiritual deception of “christian divination”, which in truth is witchcraft or fortune-telling.

Moments later I came across these two posts.

Adrift in the River of God

 I  don’t recall exactly how it started or when the decisive moment was. I do not know how I got to the point of being so deeply entrenched in apostasy and deception. I can not definitively point to one moment and declare that that is when the deception began and my destructive course was charted. I simply don’t know. What I do know is that I was convinced. I was convinced of my being on the right path. I was one of God’s chosen, His elite, His enlightened ones.  “Get into the River” was our mantra and our manifesto.   In my home church they called us the River People, and I was hopelessly immersed. Those that loved me enough had tried to warn me.  However, I did not want to listen to those I perceived as being beneath me spiritually.  They simply did not understand the river’s flow, I reasoned.  No, I wanted nothing to do with their life-vests; I was happy being adrift.

Adrift in the River of God- Part Two

 After my first summer at Morningstar I enrolled in their ministry school. As Joyner was quick to point out, it was not a Bible school per se. The emphasis was on prophesy, dreams, visions, and the supernatural.  We were being trained for the coming harvest and what Joyner referred to as the coming civil war in the church. He was quick to tell us that we represented the blues. Like the ocean and the sky, blue stood for revelation and expanse, spiritual enlightenment, and openness of spirit.

We were special, a new breed. We were Joel’s army who would go forth victoriously to build the kingdom of heaven on earth. 
******
……..Did I have a gift? Was this gift truly from God? If this gift was from God, was this the way He wanted me to use it? What if the gift was not from God? What if I had been engaging in soul reading or fortune telling?  I believed in the gifts of the Spirit but something suddenly felt very wrong.

Over at the Earthquake Resurrection blog, David Lowe has posted a very powerful 5 minute video.  I did not get through it without tears and  it sent me to my knees in gratitude for what our Father gave for us.

THE DAY AFTER A PAGAN “HIGH HOLY DAY”

Well, Hallowe’en is over for another year. It is a day, as a Christian, that I typically ignore. My sensible parents never allowed us to participate in the event other than to deposit gospel tracts in the bags of the candy-beggars. (My daddy was a pastor). We always had a great time, though, rounding up various unused items from the household (old belt buckles, other stuff we didn’t want) and added them to their bags of goodies, hooting with glee as we closed the door behind the unsuspecting trick-or-treaters. It continues to be a day that we don’t acknowledge other than as a pagan holiday. It always seemes to weird to me when people greet each other with “Happy Hallowe’en”! Happy? HAPPY!!? Scary, silly, or even devilish would be a more appropriate adjective to describe the event. It troubles me to think of what is going on behind the closed doors of the growing number of Wiccans, earth-worshippers and Satanists on that day. I hear their numbers are growing rapidly as people are turning away from the living God to worship created things. A lot of physical and sexual abuse is taking place behind those closed doors. It was interesting and informative to watch a television show on VisionTV yesterday talking about the true origins of Hallowe’en. They didn’t make any bones about its pagan past and its pagan present, speaking of its growth in popularity throughout North America.

Well, enough rambling. I found a good article about the issue that I thought I would pass on. “What is This? Christians Celebrating Halloween?” written Ray Gano of Prophezine, likens it to the act of adultery, or flirting with an old boyfriend after geting married. If you and your family are still “celebrating” Hallowe’en, you need to reconsider doing that, and ask yourself if it brings honor to Christ.


 

As you know I have posted many testimonies. This is a very important one.

******************************************************************************************

My name is Donna and I am Bipolar.  About 10 years ago my physician had me on 13 pills a day.  The more I took the worse I became.  I don’t think my third eye opened but I was psychotic and at times felt like I floated out of my body.  Looking back I was absolutely tortured by demons.
Once I felt like two people, one being the real me and the other out to kill me.  I did not want to die of course.  I was on the end of the couch and for some reason I new this “other me” or demon was coming in for the kill.  I knew it was about to overtake “me” and kill me.  I called my mother and screamed, “please come over now!!!! I am going to die!!!”  My entire family came over and I had clumps of hair in my hands and bald spots on my head.  My best friend was there and said my face was so twisted and blue it did not even look like me!  She was scared to get close to me and stood by the door.  I began clawing my face and for whatever reason started screaming for my father to get on his knees and apologize.  My father would not.  I began clawing harder and blood was streaming down my face, and my mother was screaming at my dad.. “Don’t just do it” Looking back my father looked so humiliated on the floor saying he is sorry. HORRIBLE, I cant believe it.  It was like I was possessed and this demon was holding me hostage.
Finally my parents grabbed me, put me in the car, and fought me all the way to the hospital.  I hit the doctor, pulled my IV out and finally ended up in four point restraint.  Not many months after that, I was walking through the house when everyone was asleep and IT came over me to kill myself, a complete peace came over me I haven’t felt in ages, like an Egyptian, I prepared my body bathing, oils, and perfume, sat down at the kitchen table and began swallowing pills.  I was happy!  The next morning my husband found me on the floor blue.  3 days in ICU they said I would not make it, and by the grace of God I woke up!
I have been plagued by demons, alcoholic, and show signs of psychic abilities, and out of body experience.
I love the Lord with all my heart and I am off all meds now and I am much better.  I still struggle with alcohol, please pray.  I know for certain the third eye is a demonic doorway.  People that take dmt immediately see geometry, snakes, dragons, and aliens.  Aliens are demons posing as if they are from another “universe.”
Alister Crowleys’ “ascended master” was an alien and he drew a picture of it, it is an alien.  God said in the end times peoples hearts would fail (heart attack) them when they look in the sky.  I believe it will be UFOs covering the sky, their message, “we are your creators, we are back to EVOLVE YOU to the next level.”
The rapture will be explained by saying they cleansed the earth from the backward thinking individuals so the rest can evolve to the next level.  On you tube new agers all over the place have said their ascended master (demons) have told them they are from Sirius, Pleiadies, Orion, and they are their creator “creative intelligent creator” and the “Great Awakening has already begun.”  I know it sounds crazy but look at the History channel, ALL about UFOs. The Vatican has already put out the anouncement if aliens show up remember they are our BROTHERS!  Go ahead goggle it, Vatican Aliens, It was on Fox News, CNN, everywhere this past May. Crazy!
